I made an emergency appointment with Dr. Boruchov on a Sunday morning, and had a very positive experience. He was honest with me about the complicated root canal I needed (which required a specialist), he numbed my tooth for a fewhours of relief until the next day when I had an appointment with an Endodontist, and showed compassion when I explained the level of pain that I was in. He also gave me good advice on the timing of the antibiotics I was prescribed for my abscess. I plan on coming back to this practice for my general dental needs.

I went in and told the woman at the front desk of my cleaning appointment through ZocDoc. She verified my insurance and I was taken inside in less than 10 minutes. The dentist I saw was Tina. She's a lovely woman.Absolutely no complaints. I went in for a bunch of stains and tartar. She made sure my teeth and I were taken care of. Everyone from the from desk, to the assistants/technicians, and dentists were all fantastic.

Dr. Roman CARES about his patients' dental health. He's always given me his honest opinion rather than persuading me to do something that's not necessary. This quality is something I haven't seen in a lot healthcare providers. He's been my dentistfor 2 years but I'll be moving to a different state next month. I'm pretty sure I'll be flying to New York for dental work from Dr. Roman. He's that skilled in his field. Thank you Dr. Roman for keeping my dental health the best it's ever been!

Thank dr. Roman!! This was my first appointment at Dental Made Easy since they recently opened in the neighborhood. A co-worker mentioned they had taken their 12 year old daughter there when the place first opened and they really loved it.They felt very comfortable and were very pleased as was their daughter who usually gives them a hard time about dentist. So I decided to make an appointment and try this new dental office which was so much closer for me and has it's very own parking for customers. I am so happy I did... I absolutely love love the place. From the moment I walked into the office I was greeted by a very friendly and professional staff. I girl in the front desk was so nice and patient helping me fill out the necesarry paperwork and also informed me that this all could have been done on-line which is good to know since now my husband is also going to try them. Well, once they took me to the exam room they were very nice and informed me the doctor would be with me shortly and if there was anything at all I needed while I waited for the doctor. It is always a bit nerve racking to meet a new doctor but I really felt comfortable... the place was very very clean, new equipment, high end facility for sure. The smell and the lighting in the place just made me feel relaxed not anxious to get the visit over with... they must use some type of aroma scent or whatever but it worked on me for sure. As if that wasn't enough to calm a patient they even have TV's with movies to keep a patient distracted for sure. After my exam I ended up needed a root canal which I honestly expected and had been putting off since my regular dentist I had been going to was closer to work then home. The doctor was so calm and took the time to explain everything to me and was very informative as far as my options, not pushy on procedures. Turned out I had a few cavities and need a couple of crowns in addition to the root canal so ouch but thats what I get for putting off my dental check up for so many years. The procedures were mostly all done during that first visit except for the crowns, with no pain and I must say very nicely done. The X-ray technician and the dental assistant were amazing they made me feel very comfortable and eased any concern I had. I was really a great experience. TO my surprise the office even called me the next day to see how I was doing which made me sit and write this review about my experience with Dental made easy because to me they really do have excellent patient care as well as follow up. Never had I had a dental office take the time to call me the next day to see how I was doing. Lastly, when I returned for the permanent crowns which actually arrived earlier than expected it was a no hassle type of appointment. I am so happy with the outcome and results of my procedures and now have a new permanent dental place to closer to home. Thank you Dental Made Easy!! You guys certainly managed to make my experience EASY :)

I was happy to find a dentist open on Sunday. I thought he had great bedside manners and I felt very comfortable. I am very picky with doctors and bedside manners mean a lot to me so I was glad thathe was very kind. He was also very knowledgeable and showed me exactly where I had cavities and explained what needed to be done.

Dr. Boruchov and his staff are unprofessional. As a City Employee and a member of the healthcare professional, customer service is extremely important and this was not deliver to me. Initially, I went today's appointment because the receptionistNicole offered a complimentary laser whitening treatment. Her friendly demeanor over the phone made me go to the office because she stated the office is open on the weekends including Sunday. So I decided to go on a Sunday since I have this day off from work and easier to park my car on Sundays on the busy Queens Blvd, Forest Hills neighborhood. Th day of the appointment I arrived 2pm sharp. I asked if there are any forms or copayments instead I was told to sit down. When I was escorted to the dental treatment room at 2:07pm I sat down on the chair. Dr. B came to me and said he's sorry that he's late and he "promised to give me all the time in the world "once he attends to me. As a healthcare professional, I was very understanding and told him it's okay. Next, when he came back and gave me the time to speak to him he was more concerned on why I decided not to get a crown back in November 2016. He stated he noticed I was excited to received this procedure in the beginning. However, I changed my mind and gave him notice more than 72 hours that I wouldn't go further the treatment. As a patient, the patient has the right to refused a procedure or treatment at any given time. I felt like a sales transaction because he kept insisting and pushing to move forward as if I were to change my mind. And then he stated if I am happy with it then I can stay without having a crown. Next, he stated I need fillings to be done because I have 5 cavities. I said that I understand this is a necessity. He then asked why I didn't do last year. I said I didn't do last year because I had a maximum amount from my insurance for my deep cleaning that last year Dr. Alevtina Malakova charged for my deep cleaning. She specifically told me to wait until next year in January 2017 to get it done since I will have funds from my insurance. Now remind you laser whitening was not mentioned and when I asked the question instead Dr. B dodged the question. He dismissed my question and acted like his office was busy and already told his staff member to setup for the filling procedure. I didn't even sign any constant form yet for him to think it was okay. I had unanswered questions. He made me feel uncomfortable and it lead to frustration. When his financial coordinator who set ups the Care Credit came to the office he said I am tense. He assumed I was tense but instead I was frustrated because I had unanswered questions and he then said the "lady" who does a good job with the laser whitening was out sick due to "food poisoning." Moreover, he said that today Sunday I can do the filling and some other day I can do the laser whitening. I told him I can't because of work schedule conflict and I rather do two procedures at once. Then he said that my final decision has to do with my copayment that I didn't want to pay. Shockingly, he said you think we are a "scam." He must have some sort of guilt to even mentioned that word. I was baffled when he did that because he was been so defensive. I told him I have a credit card that I was willing to pay if the two treatments were to offered today. Also I told him without hesitation, I paid the full amount last year when I was charged for my deep cleaning and this was in top of the maximum amount they charged from my insurance. This was when I had enough and I humbly and respectively told him I am a nurse and a healthcare professional. Once I told him I was a nurse he stopped pushing the sales transaction. However, Dr. B who did not know I have already confessed to his coworker was pushing to do the filling treatment. Overall, I find Dr. B and his staff very unprofessional because he or someone from the office could have gave me a courtesy call to tell me one of his coworkers who had the training to do the laser whitening was sick. Instead, Nicole the receptionist called me at 09:57 am to reminded me I have an appointment but never mentioned the "lady" was sick. I was very disappointed for wasting my time and car gas expenses. I will no longer continue my dental services with Dr. Boruchov and his staff members. It seems they crave for raving reviews. Unfortunately, my experience were not satisfactory like the rest of customers. Remember patients, if a doctor makes you feel uncomfortable just run away. Trust your gut!

I had terrible toothache entire night. It was Sunday December 4, 2016. In the morning I started searching in Internet with the hope to find a dentist office that is open on Sunday. I was lucky to find Urgent Medical andDental Care called Health Professionals NYC. It was located right on the Queens Boulevard in Queens NY. I made a call and was scheduled for appointment on the same day, just in two hours. It was the molar tooth and the ache was severe. I could not feel what is happening. If it was a problem with the nerve under crown, or it was something wrong with my gum around the tooth root. Luckily I met Dr. Rafael Roman Boruchov. The doctor made very good quality x-rays, analyzed them and explained me the situation. The tooth must be extracted. I was hesitating, but doctor presented me x-rays and explained all the details. It became obvious to me that suggested extraction was the only way to stop the problem and save other teeth around. I agreed on extraction and asked to schedule me an appointment. But doctor said we will do it now. The doctor's assistant prepared me for extraction, doctor gave me a shot of anesthesia to eliminate possible pain, but I still was preparing to suffer. However I was wrong. The extraction procedure was gentle and did not take long time. The extracted tooth was practically destroyed under crown and it had cyst at the root tip. That was the evidence of how right the doctor was with his evaluation of the issue over the x-rays. And I am very grateful that I come across with real professional who really takes care of people and about what and how he is doing. In addition I can say the office has very high quality equipment. The x-rays presented to me for explanation were crystal clear, and were made with high resolution so that the doctor (and I) could see very small details. Thank you Dr. Roman Boruchov for taking care of me.

First time visiting the office. After a short wait (5-10 mins) was taken to an exam room. Very clean, modern equipment. There was a tv to help distract me from the tooth extraction I was about to endure. The staff werevery professional and polite. They put me at ease. The entire procedure was pain free. Door-to-door I was in/out of the office within an hour (minus one rotten tooth). Highly recommended!

Dr. Boruchov made what was a very nerve racking & scary time for me, as pleasant and calming as humanly possible. I went in on Sunday after speaking with Leidy & Mitzy earlier that week(who were both so kind and helpful)to get a much needed extraction. Dr Boruchov not only kept me abreast of every single thing that he was going to have to do to take care of my dental Needs, but he did it with a very relateable and calming delivery. When all was said and done, my issue was quickly resolved , and it didn't cost me a months rent due to me not having dental insurance at this present time. So thank you to dr Boruchov and the entire staff of Health Professionals NYC!

This was the best experience I ever had with a dentist. I needed to see a dentist ASAP due to pain associated with one of my wisdom teeth. I was thrilled to find a dentist available on a Sunday and duringa holiday weekend. From the moment I walked in the door I knew I had come to the right place. I received such a warm welcome from the receptionist and had great interactions with every member of the staff. Dr. Boruchkov and his assistant Joanna put me totally at ease. The procedures themselves were totally painless and I left feeling so much better. I would highly recommend this practice.

Okay, so the rating I gave is based on my first visit. I attempted to book an appointment multiple times and every time the office would call and cancel it. Once the doctor couldn't go in (which is understandable.It happens) theni rescheduled two times after that and they'd still cancel. Their reason was because they don't accept my insurance on those days. I don't know if it's the office's fault or zocdoc because i specified my insurance type and it showed me the availability. I really was comfortable at this office however, I can't go anymore since they keep canceling my appointments and their hours where they do accept my insurance over laps with my work hours.
